When a friend asked me which bike between the logical choice or the passionate choice I said, buy the one that will make you happy. The solid slug of torque at low revs always made it fun to roll out of corners in an effortless fashion, and the engine braking meant I seldom had to use the brakes at normal speeds. The cb650r has the most power vs the other two. I like them all though. The xsr700 has a better suspension than the older fz07 but still a little under sprung when you start to push hard. The 2019 Yamaha XSR 700 has an MSRP of $8,499, while the 2019 Suzuki SV 650 ABS has an MSRP of $7,499. Side-By-Side; Compare All Motorcycles NOW COMPARING. It has an updated suspension this year. With the economy I got, I could coax 150miles from a tank, so expect to be filling up every 120miles or so. The 31-inch two-tone seat is comfortable enough for about an hour at a time, and the riding position is sporty yet civilized. So far, I haven’t seen one bike test site that claims to be set up to an industry wide calibration standard. I am gonna crawfish out of this auction due to a heated discussion with the Boss over me buying a 63rd. From a Suzukiphile who has owned 27 Suzuki’s in a tally of 47 total, the SV650 is the biggest loser here.
The CB1000R is 212 kg, and the Z900 RS is 214 kg, probably due to the usage of more old-school materials. The CBR600’s sounded great tho. As these are all naked bikes with retro styling, there’s no luggage to review, or stereo systems, or anything like that. The mirrors seem to be lifted from my GSX-S too, but here they seem to stick out even further. The X version’s ‘tuck and roll’ seat is said to have soft cushioning to help relieve rider fatigue. The Honda is not the least bit retro it is baked but it has the same angular Lok of modern makers I love v-twins, but they are not more alluring to me than inline fours. But they already did that with the SR400 in the US (really never went out of production) and the price is too high to sell in Canada. Example is the mt-07 . There was a slight change to the muffler to add more lean angle and a glimmer of hope for those unsatisfied with the SV650’s braking performance, new four-piston Tokico front brake calipers.
Personal opinion. Those were the days!!!!! No way at all.
But mostly the Yamaha is just pretty. You can delete or block all cookies but some parts of the website will not work. It’s more suited to town work, and while the motor loves to be revved, it’s got enough low down to pull confidently from the lights without any fear of stalling (something my GSX-S750’s four-cylinder motor sometimes struggles with). Per the Jett Tuning dyno, the CB650R spins out a respectable 83 horsepower at 11,000 rpm, with torque topping out at 43 lb-ft at 8,200. you will respect it more and not outgrow it as fast.

The Honda, the Kawasaki and the Yamaha all have wider handlebars and seem aimed at a more upright seating position.
The XSR700 puts out 50.2 lb-ft at 6,500 rpm, and the SV650 makes 47.2 lb-ft at 8,100 rpm. It’s similar in many ways to the engine used in the first generation of SVs, though fuel injection and twin spark plugs in each cylinder has seen power increase from the first bike’s 64.2bhp @ 9,000rpm and 42.3lb-ft @ 7,200rpm. Even with the new four-piston Tokico calipers though, the stopping power can be still be described as good, but not great. Discussion in 'Road Warriors' started by Cactus67, Sep 26, 2018. The Z900 RS has adjustable traction control (two levels), assist/slipper clutch and ABS as well. Ah, Suzuki. few crazies, I’d pay $15000 for a limited production SV650RR.
It depends on your style and usage, but for me it would be CB650 then SV650 and lastly XSR.
The SV650X uses a liquid-cooled V-twin, the latest evolution of the 650 cc motor Suzuki first debuted in 1999. travelBrakes, Front: Dual 290mm discs w/ 2-piston floating calipers & ABSRear: Single 240mm disc w/ 1-piston caliper & ABSWheels, Front: Cast, 3.50 x 17 in.Rear: Cast, 5.00 x 17 in.Tires, Front: 120/70-ZR17Rear: 160/60-ZR17Wet Weight: 437 lbs.Load Capacity: 488 lbs.GVWR: 925 lbs. Footpegs are just a tad higher and farther back than before and the wide, flat handlebar is lower and more forward, but the riding position is still relatively comfortable, especially when compared to the drop-down sport position of our other two comparo bikes. I have ridden SVs. If we take the sum of S+V multiplied by 650 we find the factor is equal to or greater than a standard or naked bike. Know anything about precision measuring instruments? Dominator GTX $269.99 Boots: Dainese Axial Pro $529.95. The XSR700 and SV650X are in the same ballpark: the Yamaha makes a claimed 73.8 hp at 9,000 rpm, and the SV650X makes 75 hp at 8,500 rpm. Trick question, it’s really all in the eye of the Instagram followers, but one thing is for sure, the X is built on a solid platform. This is not the case with the SV650X. The other upside over a sv650 is it has more tire options. Dual, 4-piston calipers, twin disc, ABS-equipped, Single, 1-piston caliper, single disc, ABS-equipped, Sporty ergos are even more fun in the canyons, But is it worth $900 more than the standard SV650. I-2’s are cheap engines for peasants! mt-07 vs sv650 (new) Close. If we then take SV(650X) we see the coefficient of X, 650 in this example, being equal to… Who am I kidding? Triumph Street Triple RS.
This slightly higher, slightly earlier delivery of torque from the Yamaha makes it feel a fraction more punchy low down – the SV surprises in that it’s a V-twin that needs to be revved to get the very best out of it. And the new GSX-R1000 is indeed a cracker, and our favourite litre bike from last year. Engine power, engine braking and traction control are all adjustable as well, along with two-channel ABS and assist/slipper clutch.

1. But …if you’re so stuck on I-2 economy get a CB500 or Ninja 400. SV650X pricing where I am is making it hard to consider anything else: 2019 SV650X - $7, 800 2020 Z650 - $10,500 2019 XSR700 - $11,700 2020 CB650R - $11,900. think of the X’s looks. Zac earned his job at CMG by crashing Editor ‘Arris’s Konker in 2010, proving he was one of the sad few afflicted by the CMG curse. The Z900 RS is close, at 800 mm. But in the long run I think it’s the better choice. The Suzuki and the Honda are both a more cramped sportbike-style seating position. I tend to prefer my 700cc and smaller bikes to be 90 degree v-twins because of the combination of torque and minimal vibration.

I love the looks of the Honda much more than my FZ07 but I feel like the CB650R has no character, it’s just an in-line 4. Posted by 2 years ago.

And despite the model’s hiatus when the game-crushing Gladius came to town, it’s one of the middleweights that has stood the test of time and garnered a cult-like following, especially in Twins class club racing around the world. I suspect tacking $1000 dollars on existing bikes for a retro look isn’t going to work with buyers and prices will be adjusted mid-season. I weigh about 13 stone and found the SV650X to be compliant and never too harsh. I don't love Suzuki overall, but the sv650(everything with that motor) and the drz400sm are great bikes. and I’m pretty sure those are 4 pot calipers up front.
